341. On Cosmic Electricity [Journals] [Pensee]
... | Issue Contents On Cosmic Electricity Martin Krustal, Ralph Juergens, C. E. R. Bruce, Eric W. Crew SPECIAL SUPPLEMENT With the following remarks by Professor Kruskal and Mr. Juergens we conclude the exchange which was begun in the winter, 1973, issue. The paper which initially sparked this discussion was Juergens' "Reconciling Celestial Mechanics and Velikovskian Catastrophism," published in the fall, 1972, Pensee. Ed. I PROFESSOR MARTIN KRUSKAL- Program in Applied Mathematics Princeton University I am somewhat reluctant to engage in polemical debate with Mr. Ralph Juergens in the pages of Pensee, as I feel that not many readers will want to follow the intricacies of the ...
342. Eclipses in Ancient Times [Journals] [Pensee]
... render our present knowledge of Earth and Moon motions inadequate for eclipse computations before the supposed interference. The discrepancy between observation and calculation would become greater the further back in time we go. Nonetheless, the variation in eclipse records described above is the only one which has been found after known "perturbations" produced by the mutual gravitation of the celestial bodies have been allowed for. The gravitational pull of the Sun and of each planet on the Earth and Moon is taken into careful account in such computations as these. The calculations are highly complex, achieving a product of successful intricacy which, in spite of the fact that it defies verbal analysis, is one of the most imposing ...
343. Velikovsky's Martian Catastrophes [Journals] [Aeon]
... Dwardu Cardona 1. The Martian Prominence Immanuel Velikovsky's reconstruction of the Martian catastrophes has not withstood examination. This can be stated despite the fact that some of the chronicles be cited as evidence do seem to hint at a series of cosmic disturbances during the 8th and 7th centuries B.C . In-depth investigation, however, has not revealed the celestial culprit as having been the planet Mars. As Velikovsky himself admitted: [This] was the time of the Hebrew prophets whose books are preserved in writing, of Assyrian kings whose annals are excavated and deciphered, and of Egyptian pharaohs of the Libyan and Ethiopian dynasties; in short, the catastrophes .. . did not take place ...
344. The Venus versus Mars Controversy, or Which Planet Moved the Earth? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Earth?Samuel Ronald Windsor Shortly after the second world war Immanuel Velikovsky [1 ] assembled an imposing compilation of historical references to a time of solar-system chaos. It was a time when two planets interfered with each other's peaceful progress in their respective orbits. Because Earth was a participant, people in many different cultures kept records of these "celestial wars." Velikovsky's data are impressive, and many have come to accept his theories as valid. Velikovsky advanced the hypothesis that planets Venus and Mars were the heavenly bodies recorded as interfering with the Earth. Early in the 1970's Donald Wesley Patten proposed Mars as Earth's only adversary. [2 ,4 ] A close analysis of the ...
345. The Tao [Journals] [Kronos]
... The following essay has, for the most part, been extracted from an editorial which appeared in the journal Chiron (2 ) and appropriately summarizes many of the ideas contained within this present issue of KRONOS. "Throughout antiquity priests and poets warned our ancestors that riot, plague, and the fall of nations were merely the profane manifestations of celestial disharmony, or what they called a perturbation of the heavenly spheres. ' In fact this view of man's relationship to the cosmos was still current less than four hundred years ago. In Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida (1602), for example, we find Ulysses saying: . . .but when the planets In evil mixture to disorder ...
346. The Saturn Thesis (Part 3) [Journals] [Aeon]
... oversimplifying. In the ongoing overview, (1 ) I have chosen two closely-related conditions as a slice of cosmic history. One early and elementary condition produced the universal imagery of the Great Conjunction, and this imagery is logically tied to the collective memory of a primeval Unity, or formless god, dominating the sky prior to differentiation of the celestial powers. The first condition we explored is represented by the two following images. The Great Conjunction of Saturn's Epoch. (Illustration by David Talbott) AEON: Could you, once again, explain the images in question? Talbott: The theory identifies the components by reference to early astronomical traditions. The primeval sun (Unity, formless ...
347. The Legends of the Jews: Volume II - Moses in Egypt [Books]
... as though to go forward and meet him, and it settled back into quietude only when his foot rested upon it. The first thing Moses noticed was the wonderful burning bush, the upper part of which was a blazing flame, neither consuming the bush, nor preventing it from bearing blossoms as it burnt, for the celestial fire has three peculiar qualities: it produces blossoms, it does not consume the object around which it plays, and it is black of color. The fire that Moses saw in the bush was the appearance of the angel Michael, who had descended as the forerunner of the Shekinah herself to come down presently. It was the wish ...
348. The Cosmic String of Pearls [Journals] [Aeon]
... of the grand conjunction should be entirely clear when the polar aspect of the conjunction is taken into consideration. It is not enough to place the five innermost planets along with the Sun and the Moon on a straight line, but this stack of planets should further be aligned with the polar axis, connecting the axis of the earth with the celestial north and south poles. I admit that this demand is not directly clear from the statements concerning the theory of the grand conjunction of planets, but if you place this theory in its proper traditional context, the necessity of a polar alignment becomes crystal-clear, as I hope to indicate in this paper. When the ancients- and particularly ...
349. Scientific Prehistory [Books]
... so effectively no nuclear synthesis, only spontaneous decay reactions occurs in the transit period. These reactions follow modes given in HCP during CT, but the modes in NTE are not necessarily the same as in CT. Discussions of the source media (assumed to be cosmic jets), what happens to GCR upon arrival at the solar system, celestial explosions, real and imagined, and the relativistic factor, necessary because GCR plasma move at close to the velocity of light over the entire (helical) path, are considered below. Questions in zRA(calc) vs. zRA(obs): (1 ) Are there relativistic time contraction during CT? (The GCR leave ...
